    Logic board for 17" 1.33 is about $500 refurbished, but about $850 new.

    The Apple store had a diagnostics fee, I think around $75-100, so maybe decide before you pay that if you know for sure the logic board is fried.

    I've been told they NEVER charge the diagnostic fee; they just have it on paper for legal reasons.
